    You might have the right cable but are you using the right software? Without more specifics it is difficult to help.

Can I get a pc to hook up and work on this tv?

Yes as long as you have the correct cables to plug it in most pcs have a vga port and some have HDMI ports so look for one of those and plug it in if you use a vga cable no sound will come from the TV though you would need some sort of external sound system plugged into the pc

How to get laptop connected with vga connector to

Unplug the television. Connect the VGA compatible monitor cable from the laptop's VGA monitor Output to the VGA Input on the back panel of the television. You will need a splitter to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the VGA Audio Input on the television. Never mind if you have speakers connected to your computer.

Press the Device button on the remote control or on the television front panel to display the Device Selection Menu. Select the device you want to view, in this case VGA. The only compatible resolution is 640X480 at a sync rate of 60 Hz.

Do not leave stationary or letter-box images on-screen for extended period of time to avoid uneven picture tube aging.

I purchased a GigaWare USB-A to Serical Cable at Radio Shack to connect my laptop to my hitachi tv, everything shows to be installed correctly on my computer though there is no signs of the connection...

A USB is to transfer information such as Service codes or commands. Is this what you are trying to accomplish with your laptop or are you trying to display an image from your laptop onto your Projection TV.
To this you would need a 15 pin VGA extension cable and a VGA input connection on your Projection TV.

How and what do I need to hook up my laptop to the tv

You have many options but probably the easiest is to use an S-VIDEO cable.

If your laptop has HDMI you could also use that method but the cables do tend to cost a little more (worth it though for quality picture)

If you TV has a VGA connector then that is probably the cheapest and quickest way to get a quality picture.

If your laptop came with an S-video to composite (phono) type adapter you can also use that but the picture quality is not as good.

Your TV has DVI and S-video so one of those would be a good bet. dont cheap out on the cables though !

In my experience many cheap S-video cables are useless when it comes to hooking up computers to a TV

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.

okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
